Day cares should be a safe haven of fun, learning and friendships for children — not a place to worry about sexual abuse or assault. Contrary to popular belief, it's not always "stranger danger" a child must be wary of — many sex crimes happen by a perpetrator close to the victim — including a day care worker, volunteer or student.
The same goes for foster care situations. Not every situation is straightforward, and all too often sexual predators use foster care to prey on innocent children, including foster parents, people associated with the foster family or even fellow foster siblings.
Whoever the perpetrator may be, sexual assault at day care or foster care should not be something any child, parent or loved one has to worry about. While background checks and proper screening should go a long way toward preventing these crimes, sometimes all we have left is to fight back for justice and healing once such a crime has been committed.

Stand Up Against Day Care And Foster Care Sexual Assault And Abuse
Here at Andreozzi & Associates, P.C., we have, unfortunately, handled more than our share of litigation against day cares and foster homes for abuse. We pursue these cases aggressively, knowing that every civil case won is a step toward justice for the survivor and a warning to any others who may try to take advantage of a vulnerable child.
If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual assault in a foster care or daycare situation, please be sure to contact an experienced sexual assault attorney to take legal action against the guilty and associated responsible parties. A criminal case may take care of the actual perpetrator, but there are often other responsible parties involved who could have prevented the abuse.
A legal suit can be brought against all responsible parties through civil court, bringing the victim justice and closure and ensuring the responsible parties pay for their crime.
